The Orchestre symphonique des jeunes de Montréal (“OSJM”) takes privacy and confidentiality issues very seriously. We are committed to being transparent about our privacy practices.
Our Policy may change in the future. We encourage you to review the Policy each time you use our website, applications or services. Unless you explicitly consent otherwise, we process your personal information and any other information we may collect in accordance with the Policy in effect at the time of collection.
Reasons For Collecting Personal and Other Information
Personal and other information may be collected for a number of purposes, including the sale of tickets or other products, order tracking, customer service, marketing, advertising, statistics and the optimal administration of the OSJM website, applications or other services.
Type of Information That May Be Collected
The personal information we may collect may identify you as an individual and may include, but is not limited to, your first and last name, gender, date of birth, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address. As indicated below, we may also collect certain information about your credit card when you make a transaction, as well as certain technical information about your use of our website, applications or services.
Collection and Retention of Personal Information
We may collect personal information in a variety of ways, including when you make a purchase on our site, when you make a donation, or when you contact us with questions or comments. To the extent that you benefit from a promotion or discount, we may also require proof of certain personal information about you, including your place of residence and age.
We keep your personal information only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law.
We may also collect personal information as part of a contest or survey. Participation in these activities is always voluntary. Participation in a contest may require the collection of your personal information in the event that we need to contact you to award a prize. Participation in a survey, on the other hand, involves the collection of personal information likely to help us improve our product and service offering so that it better meets the needs of our customers.
Collection of Information During a Transaction
If you carry out a transaction via our website or one of our applications, you will be redirected to a payment platform belonging to a third-party partner of OSJM. In order to complete the transaction, OSJM and the third party may collect personal information about you in order to complete the billing information. OSJM and the third party may also collect your credit card information. Unless we obtain your consent, neither OSJM nor the third party will retain your credit card information following the transaction. With your consent, however, we may retain your credit card number and expiry date to facilitate future transactions.
Collection of Information When Using Our Website or Applications
Marketing and Advertising
As indicated above, we may collect personal or other information for a number of purposes, including marketing and advertising. In particular, we may use certain files, also known as pixels or tags, to enable OSJM or third-party partners to collect information about you in order to offer you advertising, not only on the OSJM website or applications, but also on third-party websites and applications. These files make it possible, for example, to offer you personalized advertising based on the pages of the OSJM website that you have consulted. You may also receive advertisements from OSJM or our partners when you use third-party websites. You can modify or completely block the use of these files by modifying the settings of your web browser. Changing these settings may, however, make it more difficult for you to use our website or that of third parties. OSJM may also share your personal information with third parties in order to carry out advertising campaigns to promote its services. Finally, OSJM may pass on certain “anonymized” information to third parties for the purposes of market analysis or research into the identity and habits of its customers.
Transfer of Data to Third-Party Service Providers
Except with your consent, or as permitted or required by law, we do not disclose your personal information to any other company other than as set out in this Policy. We may, however, transfer your personal information to third parties who provide services to OSJM such as, for example, storing or processing data or processing certain transactions. In this context, your personal information may be transferred outside Canada.
OSJM ensures the security and integrity of your personal information. To this end, OSJM has implemented security measures to protect the personal information it holds against loss, theft, disclosure, copying, access or any other unauthorized use. In this respect, OSJM is subject to the Act respecting the protection of personal information in the private sector.
Links to Third-Party Websites
In addition to the payment platform enabling you to complete a transaction, the OSJM website also contains links to third-party websites. OSJM is in no way responsible for the practices adopted by these third parties with regard to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information and the protection of privacy. If you click on a link and leave the OSJM website, we encourage you to become familiar with the practices of these third parties, which may differ from ours.
Use of the OSJM Website or Applications by Minors
Minors must obtain permission from a parent or guardian before disclosing their personal information when using the OSJM website.
Access, Modification and Destruction of Personal Information
You may, at any time, submit a written request to access your personal information in order to review and amend it, if necessary. This request may be submitted to the contact information indicated in the following section. You may also choose to stop receiving electronic promotional communications from OSJM by unsubscribing from our mailing list. Any such request may also be submitted to the contact information indicated in the following section. Finally, you may request that the personal information we have collected about you be destroyed. We will then destroy this information whenever possible. However, certain information that has been “anonymized” or that must be retained for a certain period of time in accordance with the law may not be destroyed.
